What headlines this month made you smile, and which ones made you groan?
That’s our topic of conversation on this week’s Barber Shop Show, our weekly radio show broadcast live on Vocalo from Carter’s Barber Shop in North Lawndale.
Just a few of the stories we’ll be looking at:
A possible attempt by the city to use eminent domain to fight foreclosures.
Student’s at the city’s Social Justice High School staging a sit-in to protest the firing of their principal and several staff members.
Gov. Pat Quinn’s doomsday report warning lawmakers that ballooning pension costs could exceed what the state spends on education within four years.
More than 13,000 young immigrants gather on Navy Pier this week to get information on President Barack Obama’s policy of “deferred action” that would help them avoid being deported if they meet certain conditions.
So, what category do these stories fall in for you? Are they a #like, #dislike or do they make you say #WTF?
Tell us what you think and add in stories you’d like to hear us discuss on air. Joining us in the shop will be the Mayoral Tutorial’s Don Washington and frequent Vocalo contributor and culture critic, April Scissors. They’ll be discussing the month’s news with our hosts, Kimbriell Kelly and Richard Steele. It’s sure to be a lively conversation, so tune your radio dial to 89.5 FM or stream it live at Vocalo.org on Friday at noon, or hear a rebroadcast on Saturday at noon.
